Did Anyone Watch "Reaper?"

reaper-pilot.jpgThanks to the magic of DVR, I finally just watched the CW''s new show, "Reaper."

Much like my "Chuck" write-up, I don't want to get into a whole recap. If you didn't watch it, you missed out -- twice, since the CW re-aired it on Thursday night. Here are my talking points...

• Love Bret Harrison. Glad to see someone gave this guy another show. Was I the only one watching "The Loop?"
• Speaking of "The Loop," did anyone notice that his character in that show was also named Sam?
• Another great casting choice: Ray Wise. My husband informed me that he was also Dalton Voss.
• The role of Andi was recast after the pilot was shot -- or at least the trailer. For some reason, I'm not sold on Missy Peregrym, or maybe it's just the character. Which Andi do you like best?
• Does the guy ever get a vacation, or must he constantly be searching for escaped souls?
• Surprisingly, I was not annoyed by "Sock." He was actually quite funny.
• I know he probably didn't want to worry his mom, but did Sam have to tell her the whole thing was all over? Probably could have milked some sweet birthday presents out of that...
• Great show moment: The zamboni. It was a little dark, but very reminiscent of "Six Feet Under" -- and hey, the devil isn't all one-liners and nice suits.
• We are told more than once that Andi's father had recently passed. Will Sam have to retrieve his soul at some point?
• If you were Satan's tool designer, what would be your weapon of choice?
• Will Kevin Smith be coming back?
• Would it have a better shot at an audience in 30 minutes? I blew through the commercials (again, thank you DVR), and it was like maybe 35 minutes of screen time total.

Forget about Sam's soul -- are you going to save this show and watch it?

"Reaper" airs every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. (EST) on the CW. -- Rachel Cericola

I stopped watching after 7 minutes and deleted it from season pass on my tivo. So far, this was the worst show I have watched this season. Dont get me wrong, I couldnt wait for Reaper to start! I just didnt like it.

I'm surprised... well, and not. I think it's an acquired taste, for sure. I also think it should only be 30 minutes.
